Joseph Rudyard Kipling was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He was born in India, which inspired much of his work.Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894). His children's books are classics. Kipling in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was among the United Kingdom's most popular writers. In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Quotes by Kipling

A woman's guess is much more accurate than a man's certainty.
Rudyard Kipling /Plain Tales from the Hills/

All nice people, like Us, are We
And every one else is They:
But if you cross over the sea,
Instead of over the way,
You may end by (think of it!) looking on We
As only a sort of They!
Rudyard Kipling /Debits And Credits/

Asia is not going to be civilised after the methods of the West. There is too much Asia and she is too old.
Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;!
Rudyard Kipling /If: A Father's Advice to His Son/

Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears.
Rudyard Kipling /The Collected Works/

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Rudyard Kipling
